and threats. the fbi is taking the breech seriously and we have details from washington. >> don, this move comes from hackers that call themselves anonymous, but it has caused the fbi to react. earlier this morning the commission's website was hacked and dee faced. the site was pulled down and it's being restored. the commission is going to have the site fully functional as soon as possible. hours of disruption after this. what the website looked like earlier in the day. as anonymous said it was declaring war on the u.s. government by targeting this website. it contained a long warning threatening to release sensitive information about the department of justice in what it calls war heads, these are named after supreme court justices. you may never have browsed ussc.gov, but they said that there's a reason that they select method website, to target -- selected this website. earlier today, the fbi said they were aware of the cyber attack as soon as it happened and they are handling it as a criminal investigation. don? >> emily, thank you very much. anonymous, a hacker group has inserted itse
." a poke in the eye to the justice department. what does the fbi have to say? >> good afternoon. this is a poke in the eye of the justice department and a slap in the face to the u.s. government. the hacker group anonymous chose this u.s. federal sentencing website. they said it was a symbolic move by them. they believe that the u.s. department of justice is in clear violation of the eighth amendment, cruel and unusual punishment they're calling it. our washington bureau reached out to the fbi earlier today, miguel, and we obtained this statement from the fbi's assistant director of criminal cyber response and services branch. he had this. "we are aware as soon as it happened and we are handling it as a criminal investigation. we are always concerned when someone illegally accesses another person or government agency's network." the fbi saying they're well aware of this incident which happened a little after midnight. we've been following it all morning. >> what does anonymous hope to gain from this? it sounds like they'll only bring war down upon themselves and the government.
federal agencies, the fbi will a lot of times will respond as part of task forces. get them there to try to set up a perimeter, and then deal with what you know and try to contain that shooter where he or she is. >> mike, stand by for me. chad myers, let me bring you in here. just to give you a little bit of perspective as far as where we're talking about. sounds like a massive sort of college system, six campuses, this is the north harris campus in harris county, texas. where exactly is that? >> and harris county is the county that houston is centered on. if you just go north of houston proper, just a little bit, you're up here to the lone star campus, up here, there is houston proper, drive on up, and the campus is right there. you expect texas to be an area that is devoid of all trees, but, in fact, this area up here, the woodlands is actually really fully forested. that also could be another little wrinkle in the investigation, the trees and the forest and the land, and, mike, you know how it is, compared to trying to find somebody on the plains compared to finding somebody in a fore
's the fbi saying in. >> this is a big slap in the face for the u.s. government. anonymous said they targeted the federal website because it's a section of the department of justice. they feel the department of justice has trumped up charges against high profile activists. we reached out to the fbi earlier today. our washington, d.c. bureau carol krade was able to speak to the executive assistant director of criminal cyberresponse and services branch. this is what they had to tell us. we were aware as soon as it happened. and are handling it as a criminal investigation. we are always concerned when someone illegally accesses another person or government agency's networking. >> but this is concerning because this is not just where they overwhelmed the server with a bunch of requests basically. they went after them. they actually took control of the server. the government takes great precautions and measures to keep this from happening. can you walk us through what they did? >> i don't know and i think that's the question right now they took control of the server. they claim they had full contr
targeted hackers. we also heard from the fbi. they were aware of the cyberattack as soon as it happened and they're handling this as a criminal investigation. >> thank you very much. we should tell you that an anonymous has inserted itself into several national news stories. they took a vigilante role in the ohio rape case. and then in ohio, a large scale protest. they were also heavily involved in the national occupy movement. >>> today's washington march for gun control featured a lot of people who describe themselves as first-time activists. some marchers carried signs. some calling for new gun restrictions and others featuring the names of people killed in gun violence, including victims of the newtown, connecticut, shootings. maryland congressman ha holen told them it shouldn't be a partisan issue. >> now, these are common sense measures we can take. these are not republican ideas. these are not democratic ideas. these are commonsense ideas that have the overwhelming support of the mainstream majority in the united states of america. >> meantime, a milwaukee county sheriff has some
nature and black mail so she says she went to the fbi to protect herself and her family and suddenly the thing explodes. she's holding a birthday party for the 7-year-old daughter and the media invasion takes over her front lawn. that's got to be presentee daunting. >> black mail and extorsion are not legal. a prosecutor can only work with so much. if your star witness, re, jill kelley, isn't interested in going forward, that's perhaps why we don't have charges in this case. however, great reporting and good reading. say that again. >> just to clarify, prosecutors decided not to go forward with any charges against paula broadwell. >> like i said, good reading and good digging. you know what, there's nothing like setting the record straight. certainly if it's our fault, that needs to be called out. always nice to talk with you, howie. >> thanks, ashleigh. >>> a prince called to duty. >> it wasn't done the wrong way. >> that's prince harry in the middle of an interview as an alarm sounds and the third in the line to the british throne dashes off to his attack helicopter. unbelievable i
the investigation started, the fbi spoke to them before we spoke to them. and so other than our people in tripoli, which i think you're talking about washington, right? >> the point i'm making is a very simple phone call to these individuals would have ascertained immediately that there was no protest prior to this. this attack started at 9:40 p.m. benghazi time and it was an assault. i appreciate the fact that you called it an assault. i'm going back to then ambassador rice five days later going to the sunday shows and what i would say purposefully misleading the american public. why wasn't that known and, again, i appreciate the fact that the transparency of this hearing but why weren't we transparent at that point in time? >> well, first of all, senator, i would say that once the assault happened and once we got our people rescued and out, our most immediate concern was number one taking care of their injuries. as i said, i still have a ds agent at walter reed seriously injured. getting them into frankfurt to get taken care of, the fbi going over immediately to start talking to them. we did no
suspect. poor libyan cooperation has hampered the fbi's investigation. success here is a matter of justice. and it is also a matter of signaling to militants that there is no place for them to hide if they attack u.s. personnel. i will now turn to the distinguished ranking member, mr. engle, for his opening remarks. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman, for holding this important meeting. i hope we can use this as an opportunity to seriously examine the steps we need to take to prevent a repeat of a tragedy in benghazi, rather than engaging in gotcha politics that make it more difficult to achieve this bipartisan goal. madam secretary, as the new ranking member on the foreign affairs committee, let me say on behalf of the democratic members of this committee we would like to welcome you back to our committee, and we're glad you're feeling better. this will likely be your final appearance before our committee, and i want to take this opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate your outstanding and tireless efforts to represent our country in the international community. i have no dou
with the prime minister, among others. fbi agents have had a difficult time working on site in benghazi to analyze the crime scene because of security concerns. the fbi is tapping into facebook like this. people can fill out a form on the fbi's website. meanwhile, libyan officials say they are frustrated because they don't control the area where the attack happened. militants do. and those militants are sympathetic with al qaeda. local leaders are not cooperating. withins are also said to be afraid to talk and key police officers terrified of revenge attacks. >> so zain, has u.s. diplomacy overall changed since the benghazi attack? >> you know, it really has, carol. i was speaking to experts who say the security arm at the state department, known as diplomatic security, has always tried to balance diplomacy on one hand and security on the other. to the extent to which, how can you let officials go out and meet people? since benghazi, there's a lot less people-to-people contact and much more emphasis on security. the other thing, too, analysts say before 9/11, the diplomacy was focused o
dennboldened be one has paid a penalty for the attacks in benghazi? >> i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees. i assume some members of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume. about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads and putting together cases. they would have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting. but i think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond and i think what the president clearly said is, we will respond and we will bring those to justice and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good examples of that. it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decimated and in light of the recent terrorist activities that we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you characterize that a
. this is not the fbi. this is not the state department. this is me thinking that until the last attack, when they went in and stormed the plant, because it's the people said they were going to blow up the plant, and the algerians took over and did what they did, they stormed it, what i understand they executed all of the hostages. >> reporter: suzanne the family says they spoke with victor a few days before the siege had actually taken place and that victor lovelady never expressed any concern about going to work there at this natural gas facility. he said that he assured his family many times everything was safe and that he wasn't worried. all of this very difficult for the family to handle, especially his daughter, erin, who with her older -- younger brother are mourning the death of their father now. >> nothing's happened there in so long and my -- we -- my friends have been doing it for so long. it's fine there it's so safe, we have protection. he really truly felt safe there. >> reporter: suzanne, the family says that they don't know when victor lovelady's body will be brought back to the united
's currently at the justice department. she was fbi director mueller's chief of staff. she also worked on the enron task force helping to prosecute some of the people in the enron case. you know who else did? the current white house counsel. so they have sort of a women's -- they are sort of -- you can talk about a boys club, they are a women's power club. they prosecuted some of those men with enron and came up through the ranks with alaina kagan. >> real quickly here, i know there are three recess appointments the president made and the supreme court has now said they are unconstitutional. what does that mean for the white house? he made these appointments while the senate was out during recess. how is the white house responding? >> reporter: we have asked them for comment and let me check my blackberry to see if it's coming in. it now has to go to the supreme court again. this will probably go to the supreme court and be battled out there. the president can make recess appointments when the senate is out of session. at the time the president made these recess appointments, the senat
